New York City | Engineering | Full-time | Updated: April 11, 2019, 11 a.m.

Job Description

Messari is a fast growth startup in New York that is building the next generation data layer for the global cryptoasset community. We believe data is knowledge, and with knowledge, you can invest with confidence. But getting information you can trust in the crypto world is hard. Our mission is to drive factual crowd-sourced information and data transparency across every corner of the emerging token ecosystem by building an open data library for blockchain projects and cryptoassets. We are applying ideas of open data and crowdsourcing to financial services, giving investors the tools they need to separate the wheat from the chaff, and helping enable smarter regulation along the way.

Are you passionate about crypto finance? Do you daydream in the overlap between open-source coding and Freakanomics? Do you want to help change the world and build the core data infrastructure for the next 100 years? Then we want to talk to you.

We’re looking for a ambitious, dedicated, methodical, and versatile full stack engineer with the experience and passion to solve interesting problems. We need someone who can build tools for interacting with content, real-time feeds, and blockchain data, and work with designers on intuitive interfaces that keep our users and contributors coming back for more. You will work in a team with fellow engineers to create informative and scalable products that help our global user base educate themselves and make critical investment decisions.

You know how to take a break, and are passionate about your life both inside and outside the office.
